Arvada, CO – WEBWIRE

TestAmerica Laboratories, Inc., a leader in laboratory support services to the Utility Sector, announced today the introduction of a unique analytical capability for the determination of selected species of selenium in flue gas desulfurization waters.  The analytical technique couples high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with inductively coupled plasma/mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) for the determination of Selenite, Selenate and Selenocyanate.
Tom Yoder, Product Manager, stated, "The chemistry of Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) wastewater can vary significantly from facility to facility depending on many factors including the type of FGD process, the composition of the coal and limestone and the water used.  It is important to know what selenium species are present when selecting an appropriate wastewater treatment technology.  TestAmerica’s selenium speciation method provides valuable data that assists Utility Sector clients with implementing cost effective treatment and control technologies.”
